Zurich Airport Security - a question

On Wednesday of this week I flew Swiss from Gate D31 to Manchester on the late afternoon flight. (It was, incidentally, an excellent flight on an Airbus 321 (OO)). Those that know Zurich will know that you will have already passed through security and the main airport lounge to go through passport control to the D Gates lounge area.
When boarding commenced we were only required to have our boarding pass scanned at an electronic gate to access the aircraft. Surely, the identity of the passenger has to be matched to the boarding pass/ticket prior to boarding to ensure that those who are supposed to be getting on, actually do?
My wife thought that security at Zurich was much less rigorous than the outbound journey from Manchester when all belts and, in my case, shoes had to be removed.
